Also known as Métropole Television, M6 is the third most watched TV service in the French-speaking world. It is the flagship channel of Groupe M6, a media group that owns other TV channels as well as radio stations and production companies. M6 broadcasts a mixture of news plus drama and reality shows (both home produced and US imports) to a largely young audience.
In the search for a new video logger to replace its obsolete Volicon Observer system, M6 consulted Visionetics, Mediaproxy's technology partner in France. The broadcaster selected LogServer not only for its logging capabilities but also to increase the range of functions that can be offered to the operators who use it. These include full compliance monitoring and analysis of channels on both SDI and TSoIP (Transport Streams over IP) outputs, as well as social media. There are also plans to use LogServer to monitor SCTE-104 and SCTE-35 insertion messages.
Visionetics, a specialist in digital multimedia, broadband access and wireless communications, has also supplied Mediaproxy systems to the NextRadioTV group, which comprises BFM TV and RMC, and NRJ Group, owner of 33 FM and 220 internet radio stations, 12 mobile apps and replay TV services.
